I must admit though, Im thoroughly enjoying the horswaggle storyline, I nearly died laughing when Vince Mcmahon took his belt to the poor dwarf in a cage especially when poor Finlay was handcuffed to the ropes & was powerless to stop the sick beating...

Finlay is one of the top coaches in the WWE and wrestling in general, jeez that makes me sound a geek. . His in the ring stuff is pretty ordinary and he has average mike skills but he is just given outings to help the other guys and girls learn routines etc...

Dickie Davies is a legend.

My missus liked finlay, she said he was a good actor! & fair play to Finlay, when Hornswaggle was taking a sick beating & Finlay was handcuffed to the ropes, he really looked as if he wanted to kill McMahon & his sick sidekick

To be honest I have hardly watched it since the whole Hornswoggle scenario started, I used to watch it with the kids but my oldest just stopped watching it so I kinda did too. We have flicked iton a couple of times but it seems to have gone crap for quite awhile.

My kid liked TNA as well and he does not watch that at all now.

Finlay has always been an average guy there but I guess very reliable considering how many crap performers they have and the god damm shocking diva's, only thing worse than themn is Cena.

Eubank Watson II and the riot that followed. I was only 10 at the time.

I didnt really become a hardcore fan until 1997 but have been ever since.

My earliest memories were the Mcguigan fights but i was pretty young He became my hero and got me hooked on boxing. Then came the Benn/Eubank/Watson fights and i've been an addict ever since!

My Grandad who was an old pug used to live next to David "Bomber" Pearce and he used to take me to go watch him spar when I was a kid.
Earliest TV memory would be Marvin Hagler against Alan Minter, probably due to the scenes after the fight.

My first boxing memories are around maybe 7 or 8 ish: Barry McGuigan being on the TV boxing, but I can't quite remember who he was fighting. I also have vauge early memories of Lloyd Hunigan beating Curry and me liking the hitman Hearns and slightly less so but still being a fan of Marvin Hagler.

The Minter fight was the first time I'd seen a Brit fight for a world title in the glitz of America and it really captured mt imagination. The Watt-Nash fight was just massive domesically (I think a lot of people forget just how huge this fight was).

The boxers that really got me into the sport and confrmed my interest were the likes of Kaylor, Sibson, Mittee, (pre Curry) Honeyghan etc domestically because you could watch them fighting live on BBC1 on Sportsnight Wednesday nights and the obvious 'Fab Four' of Hagler, Leonard, Duran and Hearns in the USA.

Its one of the reasons I tend to bristle when people lump all the people who rate Hatton togther as know nothing football fans who've only been into boxing for 5 minutes

We must be of similar age cos that could be my post.
